Friday, 15 January 2010 » Barking mad? »


Yes, I was. Totally.

I followed Barking Football Club avidly from the late 1970s through to the early 1990s. My support for the Blues also kicked-off my interest in photography. I edited the club's programme for several years and it was very much a case of generating my own content to fill it. So I started to take a camera to most matches from the mid-1980s as snapping some pics seemed to be a good way to help fill the pages.

So, I've dusted off the negative scanner and here are a few images from the early days of my photographic career.

At the time, the club was followed by a relatively small but very loyal band of supporters, who travelled to away games in good numbers and always in good cheer. Here's a shot that I took at Windsor & Eton FC back in March 1990...



I was also involved with the club shop. Here, Drew, Geoff and Richard are seen outside the second incarnation of the Mayesbrook Park store known as 'Emporium II'. I hope you like the way I managed to compose the pic to get that pole to stick out of Geoff's head!



I did shoot some action at the time as well. This image of John Ray heading for goal at Hayes in May 1990 is a bit of a rarity - Blues lost the game 6-1 and barely had an attack...



Let's finish this blog post with a goal. Danny Benstock finds the net for Barking against Witney Town in an FA Trophy match played at Mayesbrook Park in September 1990. Blues went on to win the match 4-1. This particular frame was shot on a Canon EOS600 camera fitted with a Canon 70-210mm f/4 EF lens. The film stock was a roll of Fujicolor ASA400...
